Congratulations to all our amazing athletes who participated! Normally seven of these athletes who qualified would then go on to compete at the Australian All Schools, however with Covid-19 this has unfortunately been cancelled.

On a positive note, the Summer Athletics season is now in full swing and we have the largest number of registered athletes ready to compete throughout the season ever.

Our focus now is on Queensland State Relay and Multi Event Championships in November and December. These will be followed by the Queensland State Championships in February and hopefully the Australian Championships in March where we should see a record number of Somerset Athletes performing.

If you are interested in competing in these upcoming events over Summer and are aged 12 years plus, please contact me, Mark Ladbrook for more information.
